Places named "SOLEC" in Poland,and Polands partitions #poland

Mendelssohn <mendelssohn@...>
 

Dear genners,
Looking for a place named "Solec", in Poland in a good road-atlas, I found
many places named Solec (9 !!!) and I also learned that IN Warszawa, there
is not only a "Solec Street", along the Wisla, but also a part of the city
which is named "Solec" (south of Jerozolimskie street,sud-east of the city):
it was the cyrkuli VII in 1870 (?) and I am not surprised that my
gggrandfather, who was corntraider and shipowner had lived..near the Wisla
and the harbour.
I would like to get answers to the following questions:
1.Do you know if the word "Solec" has any meaning in Polish? (is it related
with trade or market ?)
2.Do you know what was the number of the "cyrkuli" (district) corresponding
to tis part of Warszawa before 1870?(around 1853-55)
2.Do you know a burg or a city named Solec, in Poland ,which would have had
a jewish population and which would have been divided through a Polands
partition (1772,1793,1795, or 1815) between Prussia and (russian)Poland ?
I heard in my family that many Mendelssohns lived in a town named Solec and
that some of them became "prussian" and the others "polish": I don't know if
it is true but a precise map of different patitions of Poland would help me
a lot! Is it possible to find such maps on the Web?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Kind regards,
Florence Mendelssohn, Paris (France)

Dear Genners,

Some of the people that can be viewed at VM 273 have very
dominant genes. Their facial traits pass on >from generation to
generation. One of them is our grandmother. The others may be her
own kin or her in-laws. Please see if you can identify any of
them.

The photo must have been taken some time between 1930-1937, most
probably in Polish Galicia.

[MODERATOR: ViewMate is a web page on JewishGen where researchers post
photos, documents, and other graphics in search of help in identifying or
translating them: <http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/> VM 273 is the ID
number assigned to the photo to which Lancy refers.]

The striking feature of the Berea shul was the huge angle's wings on the

"Riga Kurlander Verein" and the unbalanced work load #courland #latvia

Martha Lev-Zion <martha@...>
 

It is hard for me to believe that only four of you are willing to do the
grunt work on locating and copying Kurlander burial sites in the world.
That is not enough to get the project off the ground. Are the rest of you
waiting for someone else to do the work and post it so that you can reap
the benefits? Everyone wants to find his family's information up on the
internet, but how do you think those details get there? Some of us have
sacrificed countless hours and enormous amounts of money to make our
Courland/Latvia website excellent and informative. Do the rest of you
think that happens by magic? And if the few of us who are doing all the
work burn out, where will that leave the rest of you? Will you grumble
then about having so little on the website? Or about the website not having
been updated in so long? It galls me to see how willing most of you are to
sit back and let someone else do the work or donate their hard earned
dollars/pounds/shekels to our projects when you do nothing to enjoin us and
use the information for your own genealogy without somehow pitching in. All
the energy that we dedicate to the general good of Courlanders and Latvians
we have to steal >from our own personal genealogy research and our families.
Wouldn't you think that more of you would be grateful and dedicate a little
of your energies and money to help us? I would like to know why you aren't
knocking down our doors in an effort to share the burden...

Your comments, donations and offers of help are always welcome!

Re: Tools for looking at old documents #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

Clear plastic sheets, often used for school papers and other small
reports, come in many colors. The yellow ones, and sometimes blue ones,
can help clear up microfilmed copies of documents. I think they work by
cutting down on the background, but the do work. If you have a poor
copy or a copy of a difficult document, try it-the sheets are very
inexpensive. You just put a small piece of the material with the film
in the holder-obviously you have to move the material for a different
frame.

Trying to help a friend. Would any Australian genner of altruistic bent, be
willing to order the birth certificate of Sam Silver, born in Sydney NSW
1871-1873, son of Isaac and Leah Silver? Costs will be refunded. Many
thanks in anticipation of help.
